Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent RB LeSean McCoy is a sleeper pick free-agent target of the Detroit Lions, according to Chris Burke of The Athletic Thursday, March 5.
Huddle Up: McCoy was effective, at times, with the Kansas City Chiefs last season, but he became a non-factor in the latter portion of the regular season and through the playoffs. He's unlikely to be more than a role player if he catches on in Detroit, and Kerryon Johnson would remain the preferred draft target.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent RB LeSean McCoy is not expected to return to the Chiefs in 2020. The Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Chargers are two potential landing spots.
Huddle Up: Shady showed shades of his old self (say that 10 times fast) in KC. He ran for 4.6 yards per carry in 101 attempts with the Chiefs. He'll likely land somewhere in a timeshare and be a solid RB4 possibility in PPR leagues.

Updating a previous report, the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to have more defensive depth available for Super Bowl XLIV, assuming that RB LeSean McCoy is declared inactive for the game.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy likely will be inactive as a healthy scratch and won't play in Super Bowl LIV, sources said Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: McCoy hasn't logged a touch since Week 15, and it's clear the veteran back has been phased out of the Chiefs' plans with the healthy return of RB Damien Williams.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (illness) remained out of practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: McCoy played just one offensive snap in last week's Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans. He's clearly behind RB Damien Williams and is no longer worth starting.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 16 yards on six carries against the Denver Broncos in Week 15.
Huddle Up: McCoy has received at least 10 touches in two of the last four games but does not appear to have a consistent role in the offense. Fantasy players in most leagues can keep McCoy on the bench.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy carried the ball 11 times for 39 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy wasn't particularly impressive, but his 11 carries were more than double anyone else, and with injuries claiming some of the team's other preferred backs McCoy seems to be atop the pecking order. His production remains nominal, however, and he's topped out as a flex option right now.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy ran five times for 10 yards and a touchdown and added three catches for 20 yards in Week 13 versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: At this point, it's becoming painfully obvious Andy Reid doesn't view McCoy as anything more than a committee back. While the 31-year-old still has a lot of his trademark lateral agility left, Reid hasn't given him more than nine carries in any of the last four games. Fantasy owners would be wise to expect nothing more than flex-level production from him in Week 14 versus the New England Patriots.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy was never placed in the concussion protocol near the end of the team's Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Now fantasy owners must wait to see if Damien Williams will be able to play after suffering an injury to his ribs in the same game. If he cannot, McCoy and even Darrel Williams would be solid flex options in Week 13 versus the Oakland Raiders. If Damien Williams can play, then fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere, as head coach Andy Reid has been very hard to predict this season in terms of the usage pattern of his running backs when everyone has been healthy.

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) left the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Chargers in the fourth quarter and he is being evaluated for concussion.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs might end up winning the game, but they lost Tyreek Hill early, Damien Williams in the middle of the game and now Shady at the end. It could be a costly victory if they end up holding on. Darrel Williams will be the guy doing the heavy lifting down the stretch.
